Mercury Systems, Inc. announced it received a $6.3 million order from a leading defense prime contractor for radar processing products. The order includes solutions for multiple surveillance programs and platforms ranging from high-altitude reconnaissance to maritime surveillance in both manned and unmanned aircraft. The order was booked in the company’s fiscal 2017 fourth quarter and will be shipped over the next several quarters.
The radar processing solutions provided are standard 6U form factor products based on open systems architectures (OSA) that enable affordable reuse of technology across multiple platforms. The technologies provided include high-performance CPU and FPGA processing, digital receiver exciters (DREX), I/O modules and switch fabric interconnect.
“Pre-integration of technology across the full sensor processing chain is a core value provided by Mercury,” said Ian Dunn, senior vice president of Sensor and Mission Processing at Mercury Systems. “This pre-integration of DREX and sensor processing lowers the overall program risk for our customers.”
